One of the things I missed about “home” when I first moved to London many years ago was Aussie food. For the first few years, I’d plead with my parents to send me parcels containing cherry ripes, milo bars, violet crumbles and more.

Then I discovered the Australia Shop in London. An aladdin’s cave of Aussie confectionery, biscuits, snacks and jams. It kept me going for years.

And now I see that TNT magazine has also opened an online shop selling Aussie food. Neither of the shops are cheap but then what do you expect when the stuff has to be air freighted half way around the world.

But at least they are there for when I get homesick moments and crave twisties, cheezles and…….. no, I best stop now.
